Strike on Syria air base kills 14, including Iranian forces: monitor

Beirut (AFP) – An early-morning strike on a Syrian government air base in the country’s centre killed 14 fighters, including allied Iranian forces, a monitoring group said on Monday. 

“At least 14 fighters were killed in the strike on the T-4 airport, among them Iranian forces,” said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based war monitor. 

Syrian state media had earlier reported dead and wounded, without giving casualty figures.
